The hosts of the NPR podcast Planet Money made a whirlwind stop at Salt Lake Community College on Wednesday.
David Kestenbaum and Stacy Vanek Smith brought their funny and insightful radio presence to Utah to present their program, The History of Economics in 45 Minutes.
The hosts took students and attendees through an interactive and humorous economics presentation, discussing topics such as light through the ages and how a t-shirt makes it around the world.
Kestenbaum and Smith offered their unique take on economics and how it affects everyday people.
Attendees were treated to a question and answer session following the presentation, which covered topics ranging from radio production to the future of global economics.
The event was sponsored by the SLCC School of Business and SLCC Arts and Cultural Events.
Planet Money segments can be heard on KUER’s 90.1 or by listening to the Planet Money podcast.
